Re: Hunting air gun

They are illegal to hunt with in PA.

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

There I changed it for ya! Now it's politically correct. Gamo makes a nice gun!

Gun Control = Using both hands, and hitting your target

Re: Hunting air gun

I have a gamo big cat. It has been great at pest control at 50 yards. Got tired of loosing crops in my garden to pests and pests hissing at my kids if they got to close to the garden.

Re: Hunting air gun

I picked up a RWS Model 34 Diana at an auction awhile back. Very accurate, well balanced German made air rifle. If memory serves me I paid about $80 for it.

Re: Hunting air gun

It is illegal to use an airgun to shoot ANY wildlife, including crows and starlings and small animals. Pest control does not void the prohibition.
I suggest before you advise someone on something that can get them in trouble you know what you are talking about.
Sec. 2308. Unlawful devices and methods.
(a) General rule.--Except as otherwise provided in this title, it is unlawful for any person to hunt or aid, abet, assist or conspire to hunt any game or wildlife through the use of:
(5) Any device operated by air, chemical or gas cylinder by which a projectile of any size or kind can be discharged or propelled.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

So the way that is written gunpowder is not considered a chemical?

The wording "air, chemical or gas cylinder" is interpreted to mean three types of cylinders used to propel a projectile: air cylinders, chemical cylinders or gas cylinders. Notice that there is no comma after the word "chemical" in the 2308(a.5) statute language.
